Sip a dram make on my birth year on hatch day deem appropriate.


N- A lot of green meadow, rose petals, oxidized eucalyptus oil, just herb and camphor, not the menthol. Cool breeze of leafy and branches fragrant, thick buttery vanilla, nutty, book, cedar, cigar and even some wood smokes. Oldies wood characters that are rare and only can be found in old dram like this.


P- Packed with luxury honey sweet woody flavour, sweet corn flakes. Wood phenol developed with more pepper, camphor and hue of spent match stick. Old wood and sweet grain works well here. Delicious, but lack the width to greatness.


F- Long and minty, orange, apple, apricot with pepper with medium dry, lightly tannin coating.

— at Home.

Color
Amontillad
Nose

Bij het inschenken gelijk: Velpon lijm. Uurtje laten staan, en nu: Nog steeds wel lijm, maar nu ook tabak, een broodlucht, honing, karamel. Volle en aangename geur.

Taste

Rozijnen, licht peperig, tabak. Licht bittertje ook, houtinvloeden/leeftijd? Prikkelend, fris, volle smaak. Kauwgomballen zoetheid

Finish

Licht peperig nu nog, lange afdronk. Wat houtinvloeden, beetje bitter weer. Drogig. Ook citrus.

Comments

Lijkt dat deze whisky wel wat houtinvloeden van het vat (door de hoge leeftijd) heeft. Maar tegelijkertijd ook weer totaal niet storend, want zowel in geur als smaak komt er nog zó'n palet aan geuren en smaken bij dat het bij elkaar een mooie combinatie vormt, echt heerlijke grain.

Color
Deep gold
Nose

Toasted brown bread, old leather bag, sticky toffee pudding ale, some well rotted leaves and shagg tobacco. 

Taste

It's quite smooth and woody, there is some walnut and coffee. The grain is tamed very well, there is some dryness but it fits the overall profile. 

Finish

The finish is short to medium, dry with some coffee on the death. 

Comments

Not really my thing, but saying that i still enjoyed the experience. 

Carrots may improve your vision, but whisky will double it.

Color
Burnished
Nose

Glue, raspberry, tree bark, caramel, apple and tobacco. Water releases cigar boxes, but with more of it moss and perhaps even mould, so perhaps this one was in the cask a bit too long.

Taste

Tobacco, cocoa, vanilla, tonic, apple, yellow raisin and smoke.

Finish

Toffee, tonic and tobacco.

Comments

Years ago I used to dislike grains because of the glue in the nose. I got quite used to that, but I still find this one a bit less good than some of its siblings due to this characteristic. It's still really good though, and then again that tobacco note is in its favour.
